Their little charade is working a little too well . . . because Troy’s falling head over heels.

A Hero's Welcome #4
Annie Rains
Releasing Nov 8th, 2016

The bestselling Hero’s Welcomes series continues with a juicy Christmas romance set in Seaside, North Carolina, where a bustling military base keeps this small town stocked with dedicated, lovable heroes.

Three-hundred-and-sixty-four days a year, Allison Carmichael doesn’t mind being single. It sure beats dating another loser, and it keeps her heart safe. Then there’s that three-hundred-and-sixty-fifth day: Christmas Eve, the traditional time her entire family gathers together—and gangs up on her, demanding to know when she’s going to get married. This year, she swears, is going be different. And that’s why, at a charity auction she’s throwing on-base, she buys herself a man.​

Sergeant Troy Matthews insists that he’s not for sale. His time is, though, and he’s happy to donate it. Happier still when he learns the identity of the winning bidder: the redhead with the killer good looks and smart mouth who runs the veteran’s center. Allison needs Troy’s help to fool her family into believing they’re an item, and he’s all too happy to indulge her. But by the time Christmas Eve rolls around, their little charade is working a little too well . . . because Troy’s falling head over heels.

My Review:
This is the first book that I've ever read by Annie Rains, and I will definitely be picking up more because I really liked this one a lot.  I thought Welcome Home for Christmas was a super cute, fairly quick read at only around 185 pages, and I really enjoyed the holiday theme.  I always love reading holiday romances around this time because it helps get me in the spirit.  This book is part of the "A Hero's Welcome" series.  It is number 4 in the series but can be read as a standalone, and I didn't feel lost in the storyline at all.

Both of the characters were really likable.  Troy was really charming, and Allison had such a huge heart.  They had great chemistry and there are a few steamy scenes, but they didn't overwhelm the story.  I was really happy that this one included an epilogue because I thought it really solidified their HEA.

If you are looking for a light holiday read then I would say this one is perfect!
